JOSE MOURINHO reportedly has his eye on raiding former club Chelsea for defender Trevoh Chalobah.
But he has featured in just one match so far in the new campaign – which came in a 2-1 victory over Leicester.
And according to Corriere dello Sport, he could be on his way out of the club in January.
The Italian outfit were keen on the young defender in the summer window, with Mourinho thought to be calling for Chalobah as one of their main targets.
A deal could not be reached, but contacts made previously make a move in January all the more likely.
Chalobah joined Chelsea as a young boy and eventually broke through into the first team last season after loan spells at Ipswich, Huddersfield and Lorient.
He enjoyed a positive first season in the team but now appears further down the pecking order.
The strength in depth looks set to limit Chalobah’s opportunities in west London.
And a move to Mourinho’s Roma could be the best option for all involved.
Roma have started their Serie A campaign with four wins, one draw and two defeats.
They sit sixth as a result, four points behind early pace-setters Napoli at the top of the table.
